How to pray for your children

Both of our families attend Bayside Church of Granite Bay, CA and our pastor, Ray Johnston, had a sermon on "How to raise G-rated kids in an X-rated world" this past weekend. He stressed the importance of praying for our kids and gave us a list of specific ways that we can pray. Here they are:

1. Pray they will know Christ as Savior early in life. (Psalm 63:1; 2 Timothy 3:15)

2. Pray they will have a hatred for sin. (Psalm 97:10)

3. Pray they will be caught when guilty. (Psalm 119:71)

4. Pray they will be protected from the evil one in each area of their lives: spiritual, emotional and physical. (John 17:15)

5. Pray they will have a responsible attitude in all their interpersonal relationships. (Daniel 6:3)

6. Pray they will respect people in authority over them. (Romans 13:1)

7. Pray they will desire the right kind of friends and be protected from the wrong friends. (Proverbs 1:10-15)

8. Pray they, as well as their mates, will be kept pure. (1 Corinthians 6:14-20)

9. Pray they will be kept from the wrong mate and saved for the right one. (1 Corinthians 6:14-17)

10. Pray they will learn to submit totally to God and actively resist Satan in all circumstances. (James 4:7)

11. Pray they will be single-hearted, willing to be sold out to Jesus Christ. (Romans 12:1-2)

12. Pray they will be hedged in so they cannot find their way to wrong people or wrong places, and the wrong people cannot find their way to them. (Hosea 2:6)

Isn't that great?! If we can pray for your kids, please let us know their names here--we would be honored to pray for them today!

Mar 08 2011

Take Dr. Meier's quiz to test for ADD/ADHD

Dr. Meier of the Meier Clinics explained the symptoms of ADD and ADHD and what can be done to treat it. Do you suspect that you, or someone you know suffers from ADD or ADHD? Take Dr. Meier's quiz to check:

ADHD

 

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is typified by a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity that is more frequent and severe than is typically observed in individuals at a comparable level of development. To determine if you or someone you know may have an Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), answer YES or NO to the following symptoms:

 

Yes       No        Question           

                        Often fails to give close attention to details or makes careless mistakes in             schoolwork, work, or other activities           

                        Often has difficulty sustaining attention in tasks or play activities   

                        Often does not seem to listen when spoken to directly      

                        Often does not follow through on instructions and fails to finish schoolwork, chores, or duties in the workplace           

                        Often has difficulty organizing tasks and activities

                        Often avoids, dislikes, or is reluctant to engage in tasks that require sustained mental effort

                        Often loses things necessary for tasks or activities           

                        Is often easily distracted by extraneous stimuli    

                        Is often forgetful in daily activities          

                        Often fidgets with hands or feet or squirms in seat           

                        Often leaves seat in classroom or in other situations in which remaining seated is expected 

                        Often runs about or climbs excessively in situations in which it is inappropriate       

                        Often has difficulty playing or engaging in leisure activities quietly 

                        Is often "on the go" or often acts as if "driven by a motor"

                        Often talks excessively  

                        Often blurts out answers before questions have been completed   

                        Often has difficulty awaiting turn 

                        Often interrupts or intrudes on others (e.g. butts into conversations

I have ADHD, I'm trying to get stuff set out for a formal event I have at school tomorrow. My medication has worn off and so has my focus. What tricks do you know that would help me get done?

I think the "i" is missing on the link for clinic. I must have ADD, I couldn't even finish the quiz I got distracted :-S
I will have to print it or go to the site.

I am 40 and was diagnosed about five years ago (symptoms been here all my life).  Anyway, I wanted to mention that there are traits to ADD that are beneficial as well.  I am very observant-- when I walk in a room I survey everything and process it (but probably missed the guys name I was just introduced to).  I have prayed often for God's help with the things that really are irritating-- not completing tasks, forgetting, taking an hour to do what takes others 15 minutes.  But God has shown me that He created me this way.  This is who He wanted me to be and this is the me He loves.  When I remember that I feel a little special Smile.

ADD and ADHD can be very frustrating to the person diagnosed with, but to those around them as well. I work for a doctor that treats Developmental Vision Problems and we find that many times the symptoms for Developmental Vision Problems can mimic the same symptoms as ADD and ADHD. We recommend having a developmental eye exam to rule out a developmental vision problem. Vision is more than 20/20 eyesight. You should ask your optometrist if he checks for developmental vision problems and if he would refer for care or provide treatment if a problem is found.
